In a long article on Xbox WireMatt Booty, head of Xbox Game Studios, has released a particular and important detail on Halo Infinite.
The new chapter in the Halo series, developed by 343 Industries, was initially scheduled for fall 2020, coinciding with the launch of the Xbox Series X | S. After the troubled summer presentation, Microsoft decided to postpone the project to 2021, and it looks like there won’t be any more surprises this year.
Speaking of the importance of the PC ecosystem for the Xbox world, which Microsoft is exploring and expanding more and more thanks to the support of Xbox Game Studios, Booty has revealed that Halo Infinite will mark a new and important milestone in this ever closer union between the two ecosystems.
The new chapter of Halo will in fact have a unified progression system, as well as support for cross-play between Xbox and PC:
We know many of you play on more than just PC, including Xbox and mobile devices. That’s why we’re thrilled to announce that Halo Infinite will support multiplayer cross-play and cross progression when it comes out later this year. This means that if you are playing on PC, you can play with your friends on Xbox One and Xbox Series X | S. It also means that customization and multiplayer progress will follow you across all platforms.
Halo Infinite could return to show itself on the occasion of E3 2021, which this year will be entirely digital and in which Microsoft will take part as already announced in recent weeks.
